The first ever Aboriginal contemporary dance work for babies, Our Corka Bubs is a special place for babies to experience Indigenous culture through music and dance. Grounded in Australia’s First Nation’s culture, it creates memorable moments where babies and dance meet.
Our Corka Bubs is captivating storytelling through movement and music choreographed specifically for babies under two years and their carers. Made by renowned South Australian Aboriginal choreographer Gina Rings, a small audience of babies and their carers are transfixed by movement and play that draws strongly from aspects of Australian Aboriginal culture. The performance features two dancers, sisters, Taree and Caleena Sansbury and live music performed by Owen Love.
Our Corka Bubs is grounded in theories of early childhood development and Aboriginal storytelling and uses gentle motifs, gestural dance with traditional live and recorded sounds. The combination of elements creates a gently interactive and transformative experience paying attention to a baby’s need to both explore and feel secure.
Let them dance before they can crawl!
